Patience....And A Hot Bath

To the man in the truck who felt he had to blow his horn at me for an entire light series early in the morning yesterday because I didn't go through a yellow light so he could run the red and be on his way, I just want to say...I hope your day got better.  And I hope you learn some patience.

They say that patience is a virtue and I have to agree. We live in a busy life and most of us can't go through the day without having to wait on someone or something.  We wait at a light, at the checkout in the grocery store, at school picking up a child, at Costco, at home waiting for Comcast, at a meeting that should be over and the list goes on.  It's a choice to wait patiently or be rude and act like you are more important than others. What does huffing and puffing and blowing your horn (literally) get you?  It gets you labeled as rude (well, it's gets you labeled a few other things too but we'll leave it at that). Why not enjoy the wait?  You'll get to wherever you are going.  If you are late, you are late.  In the end...the few minutes you gain blowing by someone isn't going to make that much of a difference. Learn to be patient and you might be a happier person.    

This beautiful old mirror paired with a claw foot tub found on Pinterest speaks old world elegance and a bit of french country charm.  It inspires peace and tranquility in a world filled with a lack of patience.

Happy Hump Day.
